Just in case you haven't read enough Halloween Recaps...here's one more.
I will try to keep it short and sweet - who knows if that is even possible for me.
But first let me share my Friday: long story short it was a shitty day (pun intended). I thought I would be brave and wear this really nice mint sweatshirt I got at Eddie Bauer, I say brave because something seems to always go wrong when I wear it... The morning started out decent, I even got to work a little early! Then while I was braiding hair one of my nanny kids got into the mom's makeup, which then got on my sweatshirt sleeve when I attempted to clean up. Not too long after there was a major diaper blowout that not only got all over the kid in question, but the pop up tent and tunnel they were playing in and all over the shirt of one of the other children...Once I got that all cleaned up, I ran a load of laundry and we moved into a different room. A few hours later it was time to go for School Pickup and when we returned the dog had pooped in the hallway... Halloween, Full Moon, and Daylight Savings Time - everyone's dream week!
Thomas had a tennis tournament so it was just me and my best girl all day. She got a Doc McStuffin's Doctor Bag for Halloween and pretty much spent the whole morning playing with it and singing all the Doc songs (or parts of) that she remembers...hearing your sweet little singing has got to be one of the best feelings in a Mama's heart! While Ellie was napping I tackled the monster of laundry that has been accumulating and actually got it all put away (minus Ellie's clothes) since I folded and put away as I pulled it out of the dryer. It was a feat let me tell you.
Thomas got home after Ellie woke up from her nap and we dressed her in her costume that she wore the past two years, I think I will have her wear it for a picture each year just to see how much she has grown!
Then we quickly got her into her real costume and headed over to my Inlaws for Chili and trick or treating!
This was Ellie's first time trick or treating and she did awesome. She was so patient at the first few houses but then after several that let her grab her own candy, she just started to help herself to fistfulls at all the rest of the houses...oops! Of course I apologized and tried to get her to let the homeowners do the candy and she grudgingly obliged.
Overall I would say we had a happy Halloween and girlfriend was out by 8:45 and slept all the way until 6:45 the following morning.
Sunday was just like any other Sunday, no problems with the daylight savings because, honestly I don't think it's that big of a deal nor do I say anything about it to Ellie and we just go about our normal routine and business. That's just me though, I knew that when I signed up for this parenting thing that my sleep was going to be interrupted and you just have to deal with it. Don't get me wrong, I like my sleep, but having a child is way more important to me. *rant over*
I spent the whole day in pajamas and finished up the laundry, deep cleaned half of the fridge, and made Pot Roast. I would say it was a successful Sunday!
Happy Monday - if there is such a thing ;)
